In 2017 there is a trend emerging whereby the major data centre providers are expanding into new international markets. This is driven partly by a growing need for enterprises to have data stored locally in order to meet security and privacy laws. Energy efficiency has also become a key concern for data centre management and there is a growing awareness of the ongoing maintenance and energy costs to operate such centres. The data centre market is an extremely complex one, with many diverse aspects to it. There are literally millions of data centres worldwide and 99% of them are embedded in the IT operations of the organisations that generate and use that data. With the enormous explosion in cloud computing and related Over-The –Top (OTT) services; secondary data centres are also becoming a parallel trend to what is happening with the large data centres.
This BuddeComm Intelligence Report offers BuddeComm’s unique insights into the changing data centre landscape due to the increasing data storage demands, rising energy costs and pressure on companies to appear environmentally pro-active. This in turn is leading to a growing demand for data centres, either operated by the cloud provider or utilised as third party infrastructure.
Around the world, we are witnessing a growing number of data centres being built, rather than a tapering off. This is due to the rising need for data management and cloud services. Many of the leading players are also expanding internationally as enterprises realize they need to store data locally in order to comply with various security and privacy laws in different countries. There are a number of data centres being built in Britain at the moment. It is speculated that it has become an attractive market for data centre providers due partly to the falling pound related to Brexit.

As usual, you’ve done a splendid job of bringing an industry well and truly into the spotlight.
I think that without your input and passion, Australia would have barely scratched the surface of the benefits that can and will be achieved with the wholesale adoption of Smart Grid and Smart City concepts.
